Overview

Maldonado House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 2 bedroom house close to the beach

Beautiful new house (finished in January 2012) in José Ignacio, the most hippie chic place to be in South America!

Very practical, modern and full of light. Ideal to rest and find peace!

The house is located in Santa Mónica, 25 km away from Punta del Este (South America's top resort town on the Atlantic Coast), 5 km away from José Ignacio’s lighthouse.

It is surrounded by the charming Lake José Ignacio, Lake of Pink Flamingos and what’s best, only 3 blocks to get to the beach.

The house is 55 m2 plus it has a roof deck of 25m2 with barbecue/parrilla and a garden of 450 m2.

It can host up to 4 people. It has 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and another with a trundle bed. One bathroom and living room with air conditioning.

The american kitchen with a bar has everything you need for cooking and eating for six people. The oven is electric and the fridge has freezer. You also have a microwave, washing machine, and a outdoor shower. The barbecue (parrilla) is quiet big and it is connected with the kitchen.

For your safety there is an alarm with response. There is place enough to park up to 3 cars.

TV/DVD & Free Unlimited WiFi!

If you have any doubts I will be pleased to answer you!

During your stay I'll be available 24/7 for anything you might need.

If you want to explore Uruguay beaches I have to say that my house, Tacheles, is located on a perfect spot, because it is in a mid distance to all Maldonado and Rocha beaches, which are one of the most beautiful and desired beaches of South America.

Thousands of tourists (mostly Argentinians and Brazilians) return every year to our beaches.

Our beaches are not only special because of its beauty: they are very safe, wide and quiet. That's why not only Argentinians and Brazilians come to Uruguay, but also people from all South America love to come here: Uruguay is the safest and peaceful country in the region.

Maldonado and Rocha are 2 of the 19 states (Departamentos) of Uruguay. Both together have more than 200 km coastline on the Atlantic Ocean.

My house (Tacheles) is in José Ignacio, located in an unique place in the world, famous worldwide for its long, solitary beaches and wonderful restaurants.

The village is located on a natural peninsula that juts out into the ocean with two sweeping beaches either side. Taking a walk down Mansa Beach in the early evening you are rewarded with some spectacular sunsets.

During the summer months (December to March) people come from far afield to throw parties, enjoy carnival and see concerts in the lighthouse.

This hidden gem of a village is most famous for its lighthouse, which shows just how cut off from the outer world you are here and as drawn the slogan that has made these beaches very popular: “Only the wind runs here”.

The best of staying in my house is that it's close enough to join the activity in Punta del Este, La Barra or José Ignacio, but far enough away to enjoy solitude.

You can rent a car and use it as a base for exploring the area: Uruguay's main attraction are its beaches, so most visitors come in summer. It possesses 450 km of coasts along the Rio de la Plata and 220 km on the Atlantic Ocean where besides José Ignacio and Punta del Este, beaches in Rocha are stunning: you can either visit: La Pedrera, La Paloma, Cabo Polonio, Punta del Diablo, and Santa Teresa beaches.

If you feel a bit more active you can enjoy good surfing in the area and even kite-surfing at Laguna Garzón.

Uruguay is also an attractive place to visit during the winter and spring months between July and late November as the weather stays mild. Then you share this little paradise with far fewer people and Franca Whales too, resting on their way to Peninsula Valdes in Argentina.

If you have any further questions or would like to reserve the property, please let me know and I can attach an special offer, depending on the time you expect to stay.

Why Santiago Casal chose Uruguay

Because it is located in an unique place in the world, famous worldwide for its long, solitary beaches and wonderful restaurants.

The village is located on a natural peninsula that juts out into the ocean with two sweeping beaches either side. Taking a walk down Mansa Beach in the early evening you are rewarded with some spectacular sunsets.

This hidden gem of a village is most famous for its lighthouse, which shows just how cut off from the outer world you are here and as drawn the slogan that has made these beaches very popular: “Only the wind runs here”.

What makes this house unique

The best of staying here is that it's close enough to join the activity in Punta del Este, La Barra or José Ignacio, but far enough away to enjoy solitude.

The house very practical and comfortable. You can rent a car and use it as a base for exploring the area: Uruguay's main attraction is its beaches, so most visitors come in summer. It possesses 450 km of coasts along the Rio de la Plata and 220 km on the Atlantic Ocean. This gives rise to a series of beaches of high tourist interest for the beauty they enclose.

There are wonderful restaurants and beaches nearby as well as markets for finding items for firing up the parilla at the house.

If you feel a bit more active you can enjoy good surfing in the area and even kite-surfing at Laguna Garzon. It is also an attractive place to visit during the winter months between July and late October as the weather stays mild. Then you share this little paradise with far fewer people and Franca Whales too, resting on their way to Peninsula Valdes in Argentina.
